We’re joined this week to discuss the fallout from Facebook’s “nuclear option” that saw it disable news sharing for all Australians by Finder editor Angus Kidman and Byteside editor Seamus Byrne!

Seamus also penned a lengthy and great opinion piece around the whole Facebook brouhaha over at Byteside, which you can read here.

But it’s not all politics this week, with Disney finally launching its Star hub for mature content streaming. Alex chatted to our regular TV correspondent Steve Molk from TV Blackbox about what’s on offer, and whether it makes Disney+ a real contender in the wider streaming market!
